I want SHIFT 2 with GTR controls and physics, why can't someone produce that? The SHIFT games had the best sound/graphics/camera "make-you-feel-like-you're-racing" of any racing game I've ever played, but I couldn't get any of the faster cars to drive in a straight freaking line. Really a shame.
For the second consecutive year it was Reiza Studios with their PC simulator Game Stock Car 2012 taking the award back to Brazil as they got the most votes from the community (43.9%) but with only four votes less it was Codemasters Racing's yearly Formula One title F1 2012 - The Game in a respectable second position (43.1%). Newcomers on the podium are SCS Software with Euro Truck Simulator 2 (4.8%).
What about an older game? Something that runs on WinXP or older.
Nascar preferred, but will try Indycars. Even a demolition derby like game would be ok.
Keyboard steering preferred, don't have a wheel anymore. I free or trial demo is a must have.
What are my options?
Missed out on the 199 g27 deal on amazon but I can get frys to price match amazon and maybe get it for around 250. Are there any other ones I should look at?
GSC 2012 is built on the rF1 engine - try the DEMO:
Another option is RACE 07 @ $2.99 on STEAM
The Fanatec wheels also seem to have good reviews. If you can wait, I think Amazon regularly drops the price on the G27. I've seen the same sale price at least 2 or 3 times in the past month or two.
I owned a $75 Logitech MOMO before & currently have a G27 + Playseat.
I wish I could have skipped my $75 MOMO's, but my only option then was a G25 @ $300
I am very happy w/ my G27 & playseat today.
If you want to race NOW - buy it NOW - but if you are busy & can let it wait - then wait.
I've had to wait for CPU's & Vid-Cards to drop in price before...
When I've had the cash & made the jump to new (well researched) hardware - I never regretted it!
Have you ever seen these guys reviews?
Thanks for the input, looked at the Fanatec wheels but I am concerned about the reliability and customer service. Do you have one or have experience with them.
Is the demo not as good as the full rFactor release? Or do you have to add a lot of mods to get it running well? I thought GSC was closely related to rFactor.
